All generic TLD extensions and certain country-code ones support a security lock option whose purpose is to hinder unsanctioned transfers of active domains. Many domain registry organizations that supervise country-code Top-Level Domains that do not support this option are in the process of introducing it for the sake of safety and for the convenience of the domain owners. A domain name can be transferred only on the condition that it is unlocked and only a person who has access to the account with the current registrar can accomplish that. New domains are registered with the lock option activated on purpose, so as to block any unauthorized transfer attempts. The lock feature is among the security measures for controlling the transfer of active domain names between registrars that have been adopted over the years.

Registrar Lock in Cloud Web Hosting

The Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each and every cloud web hosting plan that we offer, will grant you absolute command over your domains. You will see all domain names registered through our company neatly displayed in alphabetical order in a separate section of the Control Panel. Those whose extensions support the domain lock option will have a mini padlock icon next to them. By clicking on the icon, you can see if the particular domain name is locked or unlocked and you can change the present status by clicking again – the procedure is as straightforward as that. You will not need to wait for the update to take effect or for our company to do anything, as the status change takes effect momentarily, even if you notice something different on WHOIS lookup websites. After all, it takes time for such sites to ‘refresh’ the info that they show.

Registrar Lock in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Locking or unlocking any domain registered through our company is unbelievably easy and can be achieved through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel – the one via which you manage your semi-dedicated server. You’ll find all your domain names in the Domain Manager section and those whose extensions support the registrar lock option will have a padlock icon next to them. You can unlock any domain by clicking on its icon and since the update will propagate right away, you’ll be able to proceed with the transfer process without needing to wait for the status to be changed on WHOIS websites. If you reconsider your decision and choose not to transfer the domain away from our company, locking it once again will be just as easy and will not require more than several clicks of the mouse in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel.
